PETALING JAYA (August 27, 2019): PPR Lembah Subang 1 residents may just see their old badminton courts completely refurbished and repurposed as colourful multi-purpose sports courts this coming National Day!
Working over several days under the inclement weather, more than 40 volunteers from PPR Lembah Subang 1, Paramount Property, Nippon Paint Malaysia and EdgeProp.my spent over six hours a day to realise the project in time for Aug 31.
The project is part of the Sayangi Rumahku campaign undertaken jointly by EdgeProp.my, Paramount Property Development and Nippon Paint Malaysia in support of the National Community Policy or Dasar Komuniti Negara (DKN) formulated by the Housing and Local Government (KPKT) Ministry to improve the lives of the B40 group.
The senior management of these companies also took part in a painting session today including Paramount Property COO Wang Chong Hwa, Nippon Paint Malaysia assistant manager of marketing Gabriel Ng and EdgeProp.my advertising and marketing associate account director Heidee Ahmad.
When completed, the previously dilapidated badminton court of Lembah Subang 1 will be coated in vibrant red, yellow, blue and white: the colours of the Malaysian flag. It will be used as a multi-purpose sports court for badminton and futsal as well as a space for communal activities and gatherings.
Under the Sayangi Rumahku campaign, besides PPR Lembah Subang 1, PPR Seri Cempaka and Perumahan Awam Seri Kedah will have their sports courts refurbished next. The private sector initiative is expected to benefit close to 16,000 residents living in 4,116 units in these three public housing schemes.
